Silverstone RV01 owners; Own a USB>PS/2 Keyboard that won't let you CLOSE the top LID of the case???

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Can anyone hear please tell me if you own the Silverstone RV01 (or maybe the other variants have this problem as well) but I have Steelseries 7g Mechanical keyboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823239002

If you look at the photos, you can see the cable is a PS/2 cable and if you want to plug it in via USB you must use an adapter.

The problem is that when you use the adapter, the height of the plug becomes TOO HIGH vertically and the top of the lid of my Raven 01 will NOT close.

It makes me paranoid because without the top lid, I feel like someone is going to "spill" inside and damage the components (maybe I am crazy)

Can anyone provide me advice on what you guys would do ?

I've contemplated buying a new case, or even just buying a new keyboard.... or maybe I'm insane and should just play without the lid ? I'm not sure please help me out.

There is 2 things I think would fix the issue. Instead of using the supplied adapter making it too high use either a right angle usb connector LINK Or probably a better idea would be LINK This is the one I would go with. That should solve your issue.


I didnt look for the best price I just used those pages to show you the pictures of them.
